An evergreen Italianate idyll at Ickworth

Ickworth's Italianate garden is one of the first of its kind in the UK. Designed for privacy, space and freedom, it's a distillation of the gardens of classical Italy given an individual English touch.

Summer gardens

The North Border is packed full of herbaceous perennials and flowering shrubs which have interest all the way through summer. Salvias, Rudbeckias, Euphorbias and many more are interplanted around the evergreen shrubs throughout. The symmetrical display boasts lots of summer colour with the Rotunda as its backdrop.
